I share a flat and we have wireless internet, the router being in the living room. Two rooms from there (in a row) is my bedroom and unfortunately it doesn't reach that far (zero signal).
I have no clue what the walls are made of, however the previous tenant used a booster that you plug into the (electricity) wall socket in the living room (that I guess would also have a cable connecting to the router?). The router is a standard virgin media router i think (tv/internet package).
I don't have a clue about these type of things, nor does my house mate but we've tried doing a bit of research and think we've come up with a solution (that isn't going to cost a small fortune - we're on a budget) but I was hoping y'all could tell me if this is going to work:
(I'm not naming any brands as I'm not sure I'm allowed to)
Product we plan to use: Two "Home-Plugs" (I understand from the seller's website that you need two HomePlug devices to make it work...)
-In the living room, plug in Product A "HomePlug 85Mbps WiFi and Ethernet Adapter" into the wall socket and the router
-In the bedroom, plug in Product B "85Mbps Ethernet HomePlug Adapter for wired devices" and then I'll be able to pick up the wireless on my laptop
Does this sound right? I was wondering - would two of the Product B suffice?
I'm quite confused and don't want to order the wrong things!
Any help would be greaaaaatly appreciated!
